Lovely Links

Keep it lively and distinguished

The link symbolizes a connection – the joining of two or more objects, an unbroken chain of elements that share an identity.

Applied to jewelry, links also can be highly architectural and can form unique patterns. Though chain is often seen as ordinary, combinations of solid and open designs, matte and polished finishes and different sizes add depth and definition. The same is true of handweaving, unusual shapes or interesting clasps.
